BritBox UK has announced that first TV series from celebrated writer Irvine Welsh, Crime, will be available as a box set exclusively to stream on BritBox from November 18th.
Crime tells the story of Detective Inspector Ray Lennox, played by Scott, in a city on the edge of the abyss. Lennox is a man whose clear sight is not always a blessing. A girl goes missing. A town is in fear. A police department fights with itself. A hero is lost; tortured by his own demons and all the while, watching, waiting, a brutal killer is poised to strike.
The six episode series also stars Joanna Vanderham, Angela Griffin, Ken Stott and Jamie Sives.
Crime is produced by Buccaneer Media and Off Grid Film and TV. Based on his best-selling novel, Crime is adapted by Welsh alongside his long-standing screenwriting partner Dean Cavanagh (Creation Stories).
